GT Meatball 700c 2-Speed City Bike - 2014GT has the experience and engineering knowhow to make bikes suited for any type of riding and any level of rider. The world of city bikes is no exception. The 2014 Meatball has a bulletproof repertoire of parts starting with the Meatball triple triangle aluminum frame and Baller straight blade alloy fork which are both custom butted to shave weight and add strength. The handling, strength, and durability of this frameset is the perfect foundation for a city bike that can live up to life on the street.
Meatball's drivetrain is also unique in that it rides and looks like a true urban single-speed, but features an ultra-innovative SRAM Automatix 2-Speed Auto Shifting rear hub. This means that you can zero in on your lane without having to worry about shifting, and have options for accelerating, going uphill, or zipping at top speeds. To top it off, this hub also has old-school true coaster brake action for ultra simple braking--there's an alloy v-brake up front too, so you get safe, steady braking action in all kinds of conditions, wet or dry
An FSA Vero Track Crank with a 46-tooth Alloy Ring interfaces perfectly with a 21-tooth rear cog and the SRAM 2-speed shifter for optimal efficiency, and it all rolls on a set of GT Baller alloy aero wheels. These wheels cut through the air, but are also stiff and strong enough to respond to every pedal stroke. Where the rubber meets the road Meatball has a pair of nice, wide-ish, very sticky slick Schwalbe Kojak tires.
At the helm is a pair of GT Baller Alloy handlebars with 35mm of rise--this means comfortable upright positioning, optimal handling and excellent 360 degree visibility. Plus a pair of GT resin platform pedals bring a hint of tried-and-true BMX action into the picture--your feet will stay on these pedals unless you take them off.
With all the city bike credibility and performance you can fit into one bike, the Meatball will be your favorite bike to ride because it's an amazing piece of cycling engineering packaged in a whole lot of cool.
